It's the CEO of the company asking her to do that, I don't think HR is going to be much help...
You should be thanking your lucky stars. As a guy I would kill for networking opportunity like that.
You'd kill for the chance of being potentially sexually harassed by creepy entitled old men?
That is what she's assuming. That is not what's going to happen and doesn't happen these days. I've gone to these conferences before, they are great networking events, and can help your career tremendously. She is just feeling that she's being told to be a hooker, and there's no way any boss would send her for that. She is being sent so her boss looks more enlightened by sending a female. I am saying that I would kill to go, because I change careers and since I'm older than all my bosses in my new field they would never send me, and I would love a chance to network with people above me.
Thank her lucky stars? Wtf? She isn’t being given a networking opportunity. She’s being asked to be the fucking entertainment. It’s disgusting.
Eh, that's the high end business world for you, no matter what your sex is, it's always fucked up. If you were a guy you probably would have been expected to buy them some "entertainment" for the evening.
